Movies and series usually show certain aspects of everyday life in a rosy light, which can modify our perception of reality. So when something like that happens in real life, it has absolutely nothing to do with what we see on screen. A clear example is how the film and television industry represents pregnancy and childbirth. They are made to look like either the simplest thing or so terrifying that the very idea makes our skin crawl.
There are at least 3 well-known and confirmed cases of a woman conceiving a baby after already being pregnant. And we’re not talking about having twins. The phenomenon we’re featuring in today’s article is far more bizarre. All these women were sure they were going to have one baby when, weeks or months later, they were shocked to find out they’d conceived one more. Let’s learn more about doctors’ opinions on how it’s possible and if some of us are more likely to face this rare phenomenon.
Shopping from home is easy. We go online, find what we’re looking for, pay for it, and then wait for our package, all from the comfort of our homes. On the other side, there is a more complex process that ends with the delivery person arriving with the package and ringing the doorbell to our happiness. Although most of the time everything goes well, sometimes we open the door to find something unexpected, as it happened to the following people.
Nowadays, kids become tech-savvy in childhood, and many of them know how to turn on YouTube to watch their favorite cartoons. But the hero we’re featuring today has developed his skills even further. He may only be 2 years old, but he has already learned how to make online orders.
During pregnancy, your uterus alone has to expand nearly 500 times its size in 9 months and then go back to its original dimensions. It’s not as if the brain is spared either, as many women even report memory impairment and confusion during pregnancy. But even so, many of us willingly go through it a second or even a third time. But remember, each pregnancy is different — the second one even more so.
There are some days where things happen that make you wish you had stayed in bed, free of annoyance. It could be the delivery person breaking your package, or your partner sitting on the remote while searching for it all evening — these things show that sometimes even the smallest inconveniences can be enough to challenge our tolerance.
Apps have become more and more a part of our everyday routine to the point that some are indispensable. Why spend hours in a store when you can see all the items directly on a screen in the palm of your hand? Even better: just type in the name and find it in a matter of seconds. However, it’s yet to become a perfect science. A lot of “messes,” wrong purchases, and funny situations happen in this environment.
Pregnancy is a special period filled not only with excitement and changes but with funny situations. Women cry for ridiculous reasons, get stuck on playgrounds, and put medical staff into a stupor. And in return, they get cool stories that sound like anecdotes.
Nowadays we can order absolutely anything, even peacock eggs in order to grow your own bird. And no matter how trusted the company is, we often open delivery boxes with some kind of awe and a pinch of worry because we never know for sure what is waiting for us in there. After all, we might end up getting an absolutely different thing instead of what we ordered, or the goods might get damaged while delivery or the thing we bought might be defective.
Online shopping is like playing the lottery. So it’s not surprising that we study other people’s reviews carefully before making an order. Buyers usually look for information about the seller, the quality and size of goods, delivery terms, etc. And as it turns out, reading someone else’s reviews not only provides you with useful information, but it can also cheer you up.
When we buy a product online, we expect to have it delivered in one piece. Perhaps to ensure that the items arrive in perfect condition, manufacturers may go so far as to pack them in such a way that when you open it, you feel like you’re receiving a new tech-gadget when you actually just ordered a new set of batteries. In fact, you can even see this “excess packaging” trend in supermarkets when you want to buy a simple potato and it’s wrapped in plastic, or when you just want to get some parsley and you stumble upon chopped parsley on a tray. What’s going on with the world?
